Award Winner | Photo of the Day | September 26, 2012
It was the time to find out the meting of Kingfisher. But I was frustrated because the place was then not quite. Perhaps some intense sound was coming from a Bridal party. It was a time to wait and I wait to find my favorite ‘Alcedo Athhis’. Suddenly I saw from my hiding my dear one. It seems that on the parch it is in the search of its counterpart but failed. I was also upset but fortunate to capture its eager search, hence the caption is given. It’s really painful.

Photographer: Nirupam Roy (Tufanganj, Coochbehar, West Bengal, India) Registered Photographer
Nirupam Roy is a school teacher by profession. His story of coming to the world of photography is quite fascinating. In one summer he planned a family trip to Orrisa, India. There he realized the necessity of a camera to capture the scenic beauty of the place surrounded by several sea-coasts. At the same time he wanted to photograph his family, especially his son Arkapravo, and bought his first camera Canon SX 40 HS. After returning home, he has fallen in love with photography passionately. Photography completely changes his whole attitude towards nature and human being. It gives him a sort of peace to his weary mind, as if a blessings from Almighty.
